Metal-Insulator in semiconductor surfaces

Just published! Quasi-One-Dimensional Metal-Insulator Transitions in Compound Semiconductor Surfaces. Existing examples of Peierls-type 1D systems on surfaces involve depositing metallic overlayers on semiconducting substrates, in particular, at step edges. Here we propose a new class of Peierls system on the … Continue reading
